213: Latin America Mass Markets

February 23, 2015

This past weekend was the big annual church book sale in my neighborhood, and I found some great books, including a mini-collection of mass market paperbacks from the 1960s about Latin America. I’m behind on my research on the longer form posts I’ve got in the works, so I’m just going to share these four books this week. All are written or edited by Western writers, and like the content, the covers display different outsider perspectives on the nature of Latin America in the 1960s. And although none are specifically about Cuba, they were all published in the wake of the Cuban Revolution, and display an attempt to either communicate or capitalize on the fear of revolution from the South that spread through North America at the time.
